Lockdown is being given across the country for one week. The lockdown will be in force for seven days from next Monday.
Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader told the media at his residence here on Saturday.
The government has taken this decision due to the deteriorating coronavirus situation. Over the past few days, more than 6,000 people have been infected with corona every day. The number of identities reached close to seven thousand on Friday
Mahmudul Haque Bhuiyan, an ‘expelled member’ of the party’s district executive committee, said the Awami League had also failed to stop Hefazat-e-Islam’s violence in Brahmanbaria. He said this at a press conference at Brahmanbaria Press Club on Friday. At that time he admitted that he was also responsible for his failure as the leader of the Awami League.
Mahmudul Haque Bhuiyan contested as a ‘rebel’ candidate in the Brahmanbaria municipality election on February 28 without being nominated by the Awami League. As he was a rebel candidate, the Central Awami League expelled him from the party on the recommendation of the district Awami League. However, Mahmudul Haque Bhuiyan claimed at the press conference that he had not received any letter of expulsion.
Ubaidul Moktadir Chowdhury, MP of Brahmanbaria-3 (Sadar and Vijaynagar) constituency and district Awami League president, has alleged that supporters of Mahmudul Haque Bhuiyan and BNP mayoral candidate Zahirul Haque were involved in the March 26-27 riots in Hefazat-e-Islam activists in Brahmanbaria. He made the allegation at an exchange meeting at the Brahmanbaria Press Club on March 29.
In this context, Mahmudul Haque Bhuiyan gave a press conference today. The press conference was held at 11 o’clock. He said, “I strongly condemn and protest the statement made by MP Moktadir Chowdhury involving me for the infernal incident of March 26 in Brahmanbaria.” Attempts are being made to involve me in the destructive activities that took place during the strike called by Hefazat. And three false cases have been filed against my workers and supporters regarding the February 28 municipal elections. ‘
